Astralis is a new Chilean progrock band, rooted in 1999. The musical brainchild is guitarist and singer Patricio Vera-Pinto who also composed the six tracks. It lasted until 2006 before Astralis released their debut entitled Bienvenida Al Interior. The music is scouting the borders between symphonic - and neo-prog with the emphasis on the latter genre, especially the early MARILLION and PENDRAGON fans will be pleased. - The varied, modern sounding keyboard work is wonderful and the guitarplay powerful, often very moving. The Spanish vocals sound warm, it is a pleasant Latin-American flavor on this beautiful album by the promising Chilean progrock band Astralis.
